Joel Embiid has a minor tear in the meniscus in his left knee.

There is some thought that the torn meniscus could be a pre-existing condition which an ensuing MRI discovered, rather than caused by the fall on January 20th, although the two injuries being related has not been completely ruled out.

Embiid has missed 11 out of the past 12 games and will likely remain out through the All-Star break.

Embiid is not expected to need surgery for the injury.
